PowerShell Script - Get the size of the Sites

I have tested this script on SharePoint 2013 to get the size of the sub-sites with in a Site Collection.

#Get Size of all Sub-sites in a Site Collection
[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint")
# Function to calculate folder size
Function CalculateFolderSize($Folder)
{
    [long]$FolderSize = 0
    foreach ($File in $Folder.Files)
    {
        #Get File Size
        $FolderSize += $file.TotalLength;
        #Get the Versions Size
        foreach ($FileVersion in $File.Versions)
        {
            $FolderSize += $FileVersion.Size
        }
    }

    #Iterate through all subfolders
    foreach ($SubFolder in $Folder.SubFolders)
    {
        #Call the function recursively
        $FolderSize += CalculateFolderSize $SubFolder
    }

    return $FolderSize
}

$SiteURL = "http://MySPSite/sites/portal"
$Site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($SiteURL)
foreach($Web in $Site.AllWebs)
{ 
    #Call function to calculate Folder Size
    [long]$WebSize = CalculateFolderSize($Web.RootFolder)
    #Get Recycle Bin Size
    foreach($RecycleBinItem in $Web.RecycleBin)
    {
        $WebSize += $RecycleBinItem.Size
    }
    $Size = [Math]::Round($WebSize/1MB, 2)
    Write-Host $web.Url ":`t" $Size "MB"
}

Expected Output:

Note: I found it from a colleague and thought to share.

SharePoint Online - Change Master Page through CSOM

Scenario:
I had a requirement where one of our clients have a Team Site in SharePoint Online (Office 365) environment and the master page of that Team Site needs to be changed. 

Now the problem is _layouts/15/ChangeSiteMasterPage.aspx is not available in the Team Sites through Site Settings and Server Side code is not an option in SharePoint Online environment because Microsoft does not allow any server side deployment.

Solution:
The amazing Client-Side Object Model (JavaScript Object Model to be exact) saved the day. Here is the code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/sp.runtime.js"></script> 
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/sp.js"></script> 
<script type="text/javascript">
    function ChangeMasterPage() {

        var context;
        var web;
        var strMasterPageUrl = '/_catalogs/masterpage/my_custom.master';

        context = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
        web = context.get_web();

        web.set_customMasterUrl(strMasterPageUrl);
        web.set_masterUrl(strMasterPageUrl);
        web.update();

        context.executeQueryAsync(function () {

            alert("Master Page has been set to \n" + strMasterPageUrl);

        }, function (sender, args) {

            alert("Error: " + args.get_message());

        });
    }

    ChangeMasterPage();
</script> ​​​​ ​​​​

PowerShell - Change Master Page

Scenario:
I had to write a quick PowerShell script to change the Master Page for a SharePoint 2013 site. Thought to share it with the world.

Solution:
cls;

[void][reflection.assembly]::Loadwithpartialname("Microsoft.SharePoint")

$SiteUrl = "http://mySite1919/sites/MasterTest";
$NewMasterPage = "/_catalogs/masterpage/MasterPage_custom.master";

$Site=[Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite]($SiteUrl);
$SiteWeb = $Site.openweb();
$SiteRelativeUrl = $Site.ServerRelativeUrl.TrimEnd('/');

Write-Host "Site: " $SiteUrl;
Write-Host "Current MasterPage: " $SiteWeb.CustomMasterUrl;

#Site Master Page
$SiteWeb.CustomMasterUrl = $SiteRelativeUrl + $NewMasterPage;
#System Master Page
$SiteWeb.MasterUrl = $SiteRelativeUrl + $NewMasterPage;

$SiteWeb.Update();

Write-Host "New MasterPage: " $SiteWeb.CustomMasterUrl

$SiteWeb.Dispose();
